At last to our home we reached
Food and bath is next inline
Mother has a treat for us to dine
Soup is ready, but the dough is finished.
We darted out in brisk legs
To buy the dough so we can eat
The highway between is a threat
I waited while he dashed across.
till this day i wait never to see him again
On his way back he lost caution
Made to pass in haste and excitement
I heard the crash, then i heard the cry
I saw the food scatter there on the road.
Behold his lifeless body on the plain
Sympathizers gathered I was bewildered
He died hungry while buying our food
He died with pain and hunger in his eyes.
